Colour Contrast


At work we are currently working on implementing a site redesign that was conducted by a 3rd party usability house. I’m working on testing the functionality changes to the site however I noticed that the text on the home page was difficult to read. The text colour had been changed to a light blue colour on a white background. I was concerned about the contrast level so I checked the brightness and colour difference to detect the level of contrast (see link below), it failed on all four tests. What are these people  being paid for if they, as usability ‘experts’, don’t understand a simple concept such as colour contrast *facepalm*.

    Damn that is stupid, that kind of stuff always draws me away from looking through websites becuase it makes them just look dodgy.
    Update us on the roommate situation as well, from what i hear from PC it sounds like it’s gotten worse!
